Author: J R R Tolkien
Publisher: Harper Collins
This book was bought for me by my eldest son last Christmas, it's the 50th Anniversary edition and is complete with all three books in this huge and heavy hardback. At first I kept seeing the size of it and thought, I'm never going to get through that with it being way over 1000 pages long. It is a book I have wanted for a long time, and my son knew this. It was actually number 1 on my book list to get all three. Well my dear son made sure I had them all and I can tell you it was a shock at Christmas as I had no idea he had bought me it! It was a wonderful surprise.
Anyway, after picking the book up and beginning the first part The Fellowship Of The Rings, I became quickly hooked on it. Having seen the movies I knew what to expect, but having read the first part the book it's so much better as I was introduced to Tom Bombadil, who I had no idea existed in LOTR's. Tom Bombadil is one of my favourite characters of the book.
I have totally enjoyed this first part to the trilogy, and didn't know I loved fantasy so much. Well this book has me hooked. Now all I've got to do is get through the next two parts (The Two Towers & The Return of the King) and I can't wait!
10/10 from me!
